No luck with the Fuse video and Ubuntu for me...

I tried lots of different conversion formats after catching what the settings should be on a post from "anything but Ipod"

 

 

I did read hear that there would a firmware update to take care of Mac/Linux issues with the video transfer... any ideas when that might be as a general timeframe?

 

I really like the fuse so far, I would like it even more with video!Smiley Happy

Nope. It has been discussed for months, or longer, but it takes time, no tellin when.

You probably already know this but I would just like to point out that many people would really like to have this feature.

 

 

I really like my Fuze!! But... I use ubuntu linux and sadly there isnt as much support for major products as there is in windows.

I'm happy with what i have though so keep up the good work! Smiley Very Happy

I also have ubuntu (dual boot with windows) and I did try to install it under wine. It just crashes and I have to restart my computer. Luckily I have windows so, I can deal with it crashing but sometimes workingSmiley Wink


Ni! A terrifying word.

I'll just be patient for a while.... but if it does not get resolved I'll throw it on ebay and buy a Cowon.

Conversion box,

 

No I didn't attempt it with wine, because from everything I had read here and on ubuntu forums wine didn't solve the problem....

 

I might give that a try today then if you used it and it worked though,  I don't like to use wine much though..... it puts .exe files on the system and opens it up to virus's and greyware.

Agreed. I havent tried it with SMC. I screwed up a lunicx server and had to use Wine to run some exe recovery tools for the server hardware it seemed to work fine. Ill give it a shot myself with SMC
